CNN, MSNBC Cover Trump’s TV Habits During NYC Explosion
Authorities apprehended a terrorist suspect Monday after he orchestrated an explosion in downtown Manhattan, but CNN and MSNBC decided to pivot from the breaking news to cover a much more pressing story: President Donald Trump’s TV habits and love of Diet Coke.
Initial reports indicate that the explosion is a probable terror attack, but as details of the attack were still being fleshed out, both CNN and MSNBC spent a significant amount of time covering a New York Times story about a day in the life of POTUS.
CNN talked to Michael D’Antonio, a CNN contributor, about Trump’s TV-watching habits and how much diet coke he drinks every day from 8:40 am ET to 8:47 am.
“This is not, okay, what doctors would recommend!” anchor Alisyn Camerota exclaimed about the diet coke.
“The thing that would concern me more is this consistent consumption of fats and sugars and all sorts of stuff that’s bad for you,” D’Antonio argued. “Any physician would tell you that’s a recipe for problems.”
Meanwhile, on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” a panel talked about the same story for nearly nine full minutes from 8:40 am to 8:49 am.
Another false story, this time in the Failing @nytimes, that I watch 4-8 hours of television a day - Wrong! Also, I seldom, if ever, watch CNN or MSNBC, both of which I consider Fake News. I never watch Don Lemon, who I once called the “dumbest man on television!” Bad Reporting.— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) December 11, 2017
